I spent 4 days in the hospital back on April 14th. after many tests & a final colonoscopy it was confirmed that the combination of my zyrtec D & imitrex caused my ischemic colitis. So now I'm on a mission to find something else for my migraines. I'm now starting on Topomax (topamax) a preventative med. Which I'm hoping will do the trick, but it will take 2 to 3 months to see if it does. If you want do discuss email me back.
I also spent 4 days in the hosptial at the end of March. A sigmoidoscopy found ischemic colitis. I still have cramping. My doctor (who was not the Hospital Dr.) did a colonoscopy in February. Now he is having me do another CAT scan after the one done in the ER. He is possibly thinking it could be the Topomax (topamax). I have been on this medication for at least 3 years.
